A musical exploration of meditation and rituals.

Between Breaths

Grammy Award-winning Chicago-based percussion quartet Third Coast Percussion (Sean Connors, Robert Dillon, Peter Martin, David Skidmore) presents Between Breaths, an album of world premieres of works written for the ensemble by Missy Mazzoli, Tyondai Braxton, Gemma Peacocke, and Ayanna Woods, plus a work by the quartet itself.

Known for their captivating performances and innovative approach to modern classical music, TCP has been praised for “commandingly elegant” (New York Times) performances and the “rare power” (Washington Post) of their recordings.

GRAMMY®-nominated Between Breaths, a follow up to TCP’s GRAMMY®-nominated 2022 album, Perspectives, “continues to push percussion in new directions, blurring musical boundaries and beguiling new listeners” (NPR). The works on Between Breaths explore aspects of meditation in sound, incorporate unconventional timbres and tones, and invite listeners to lose themselves within a captivating sonic landscape.

Between Breaths is available from Cedille Records on all platforms, including Bandcamp.
